U.S. stocks and ETFs started 2013 with a bang as the Dow Jones Industrial Average (NYSEARCA:DIA) gained 331 points from its close on December 31st to Friday, January 4th. The S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) jumped 2.8% over the same period while the Nasdaq 100 (NYSEARCA:QQQ) climbed 2.4%.
The catalyst, of course, was the partial resolution to the fiscal cliff debate and the positive mood was also bolstered by relatively good news on the economic front.
On a technical basis, major U.S. indexes like the S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) stand at significant resistance levels, and fundamental factors like earnings season, the upcoming debt ceiling debate and future policy by the Federal Reserve now all come into sharper focus.
